Did Adrian Gonzalez give Mickey Mouse ears after hitting home run?
Adrian Gonzalez did a gesture with his hands by his ears after hitting a home run in Game 5 of the NCLS on Wednesday, making many people think that he threw up some Mickey Mouse ears.
Gonzalez hit a solo shot off Joe Kelly to put the Los Angeles Dodgers up 3-2 on the St. Louis Cardinals. After circling the bases, he headed back to the dugout and did that gesture with his hands by his ears. Many media members described Gonzalez’s gesture as doing Mickey Mouse ears:

As Gonzalez ran back to #Dodgers dugout, he put hands on helmet and made Disney mouse ears sign.

I don’t know what kind of gesture that was, but Mickey Mouse ears would be a reference to Adam Wainwright saying Gonzalez was doing Mickey Mouse stuff in Game 3.
So what do you think? Was Gonzalez doing Mickey Mouse ears? I’m not sure, but I’m guessing Gonzalez will deny it.
